Matt Chahda Motorsport is preparing to have another test day before the mini-enduro at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, after a troubled test yesterday at Winton Motor Raceway saw Chahda fail toturn one lap.
The Cavalier Homes Falcon was plagued with a fuel pressure issue at itsscheduled test yesterday, forcing Chahda to lose a large chunk of valuable testing time.
With the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series approaching its penultimate round at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 - and 300 points on offer for the single, 250 kilometre race around Mount Panorama - Chahda is desperate to rid Car 18 of its issues at another test before the critical mini-enduro.
"From the get-go yesterday we had fuel pressure issues ... and we didn't end up getting it completely sorted out in time to have a good test," Chahda told v8supercars.com.au.
"We were really well set up for the test yesterday, but that drama with the car stuff us up really.
"We have figured out what the issue is, but we're still having trouble sourcing everything we need to try and fix it, like the parts and everything else.
"It's going to be a pretty busy couple of days because if we don't sort it out, we won't have the chance to test before Bathurst at all."
With cars required to pit for four tyres and fuel during the single, 250-kilometre race at Mount Panorama, another test day is vital for the Albury-based squad to prepare for the high-pressure race.
